FAQ: ClinicalTrials.gov - Do I Need to Know Medical Terminology to Search ?


Question: Do I need to know medical terminology to search ClinicalTrials.gov?
Answer:

No, each search will give the results for the disease or condition you search on, as well as results for related medical terms. For example, if you search on the phrase "hair loss", you will also receive results for the medical term "alopecia".

ClinicalTrials.gov also has an automatic spell check to help you with your search if you are unsure of the spelling of a word.
